King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain had a busy day in Malaga where they inaugurated the “Talent Tour” and then proclaimed the “Arts and Letters Award” of the Princess of Girona Foundation.
The Princess of Girona Foundation is a private foundation, established by the civil society of Girona in 2009, promoted by about 90 top-level trustees. Princess Leonor is the Honorary President of the Foundation but is usually represented by her parents at the events of the Foundation. The Princess of Girona Foundation aims to become a global platform and a benchmark for the promotion of progress and talent, through projects where the real protagonists are young people, whatever their age and scope (business, social, cultural, sports, academic or scientific).
The Royal couple’s first stop of the day was the “La Térmica” Cultural Centre in Malaga where they presided over the inauguration of the “Talent Tour” of the Princess of Girona Foundation. The tour is part of the Foundation’s “Strategic Plan 2022-2025”. The first-ever Talent Tour is a movement for the future of young people in Spain, generating a community of opportunities that connect, activate, and enhance their talent. More than 75 activities have been designed in the Andalusian city to contribute to the development of professional and personal skills and abilities.
During their time at the “La Térmica” Cultural Center, The King and Queen visited some explanatory panels of the “Talent Tour”, organized by the FPdGI. They visited the workshops “Choose the future, choose Dual FP”, organized by the Bertelsmann Foundation, in which 50 young people participated, and “Creation of avatars and immersion in the Metaverse”, organized by The Core, Entertainment Science School, with 15 participants.
Before leaving Felipe and Letizia joined the groups that took part in the “Entrepreneurial Challenge”, with 120 participants.
The next stop was the “Edgar Neville” Auditorium in Malaga where this year’s “Arts and Letters Award” of the Princess of Girona Foundation was proclaimed, which went to María Sanz Hervás.
During their visit to Edgar Neville Auditorium, Felipe and Letizia toured the workshop “Let’s Code: learn to program at an early age”, organized by code.org. They also watched a panel discussion “I don’t know what to do with my life” and a colloquium with former winners in the Arts and Letters category.
Every year, The King and Queen undertake a “Proclamation Tour ” during which they visit different cities, to proclaim the winners of Princess of Girona Foundation’s annual Awards in the categories of Scientific Research, Arts and Letters, Social, Business, and International. From this year these announcements will be integrated into the Talent Tour.
